Symlink _INPUTSERVER_ Missing

If you want to compile an InputServer add-on, you need to link it against the appropriate (32/64 bit, GCC2/4, etc) InputServer. BeOS had a symbolic link named _INPUTSERVER_ in the /boot/develop/lib/x86 directory which pointed to the executable /boot/beos/system/servers/input_server. Haiku doesn't have it.
There are other libraries in Haiku's /boot/develop/lib/x86 directory (actually a symbolic link, which points to GCC2 or GCC4 varieties), even _KERNEL, but no _INPUTSERVER_. It would be useful to have for compiling add-ons outside the whole Haiku build process.
In particular I'm trying to make an InputServer add-on for VNC that simulates input from a remote mouse and keyboard, for GCC4. For now, I'll just link with the input server executable from a GCC4 build of Haiku.
